Wyoming has excellent fishing. Euro nymphing is a great way to catch fish. Put them together and great things can happen.
My friend Kohler and I spent a fun summer day catching some awesome trout euro nymphing and trying not to get bitten by rattlesnakes. Luckily none of the snakes attached themselves to us, and many beautiful trout were caught.
It’s the middle of winter where I live, the high for tomorrow is supposed to be a whopping 12 degrees. This video helps warm me up just thinking of bright summer days catching awesome fish. I hope it will do the same for you.

Most of the fish caught in this video were taken on a fly called the Rowley Stone. It is my number one stonefly pattern, and catches a large percentage of my fish each year. Lear how to tie the Rowley Stone.
The “Cowboy” state has some of the finest river’s to fly fish in the world. This past summer I left my home in Utah several times to explore new water in a state that I hadn’t spent much time in before. In the middle of the summer my friend Derek, my Uncle Kimble, and I met up for an unforgettable trip which included fly fishing in Yellowstone, and some of the amazing tributaries of the Snake River around Jackson Hole.
The rivers we fished had an abundance of golden stonefly exuviae laying on the surrounding rocks. There must have been a great hatch a month or so earlier, and unsurprisingly fish still keyed in on stonefly nymphs without hesitation.
Wyoming is home to some of the most scenic rivers in the west. Looking at these images gets me excited for summer to return.
Cutthroat trout are known for their willingness to rise to dry flies, but the three of us love Euro Nymphing and fished this method to the many cutthroat trout we came across. Not surprisingly, we were very successful covering the water with such an effective nymphing technique.
Wyoming is not only home to worldclass fly fishing, but most of Yellowstone and its amazing wildlife as well. We were lucky enough to cross paths with buffalo, as well as a handful of gigantic moose (including the big bull in the video and picture above). It was truly a trip to remember.
